Shaklee eco friendly cleaning products that are actually quite thrifty!


Though I find it frustrating that eco friendly does not always mean budget friendly, Shaklee products are the closest thing I've found that satisfies my need to Thrift and my need to not expose my son to more chemicals than necessary (not to mention destroying the world he has to live in)!

The Shaklee Get Clean Kit is basically an all in one cleaning products kit which is a great way to not only get started with Shaklee products but also is a good way to restock at a fairly low price. At first I thought the 164.15 (non members) and 146.60 (members) price tag was a bit high but seeing as all of the products you receive are highly concentrated you are actually buying a HUGE amount of products. Shaklee advertises that you would have to spend over 3,400 to get the same amount of products, though I can't say if thats really the case, but I can say that you really do get a lot for your money!

When my care package from Shaklee came the first product I grabbed was the Dish Wash Automatic Detergent. At first glance its actually a fairly small bag and I admit I had a brief thought when I opened the bag of " wow.. this wont last long " well that was over a month ago and I am still not even halfway through the bag. Mind you I wash at least one VERY full load of dishes a day. The scooper your given to measure out the amount you actually need to clean your dishes is TINY.. I put my first scoop and was convinced there was no way in the world that that tiny bit of detergent could EVER get my icky nasty dried on milk caked bottles and plates clean.... well I was wrong.. very wrong. So far its not only gotten my plates and bottles sparkle clean but I haven't even noticed one soap spot on my dishes either. I'm guessing at this rate that tiny bag of detergent will end up lasting me as long as two or even three boxes of my regular detergent. Thank you Shaklee!

The Nature Boost Laundry Stain Remover is another one of my favorites. I have been adding a tiny bit to each of my baby loads and it is excellent at getting that mess that Connor is constantly getting on his clothes.. be it filth from crawling across the floor, his sweet potatoes from lunch, or whatever random nonsense he seems to find a way to get on himself, not to mention the stains we would rather not discuss, I've yet to see a spot on his clothes since we started using it. Again all you need is a tiny tiny bit per load so really a little goes a long way.

I still have some more products to go over in the upcoming month, but so far I am ecstatic with Shaklee .. their products go a really long way which is great on my student budget. The only thing I can find at all lacking is really the scents.. their products are scented but its faint. I am a sucker for a nice lavender or gentle scent in a product but for what I'm saving especially on dish washing detergent alone I'm happy to give up my regular product's smell. It never lasts long anyways.

I wanted to share some Shaklee with my readers so I am offering up my package of Germ Off Disinfecting Wipes to one lucky reader! Keep posted as well as I will be revisiting Shaklee soon to talk about some of their other cleaning products in the future.

I like the Skin Care Vitamin E - my favorite so far

mgster said...

The dryer sheets sound great...and I saw a picture of a dog on one of your packages...if there is some kind of safe dog bath soap...that would have to be my favorite...anyways, they all look great. Go Green!

guysrose said...

Wow! I'm the first to leave a comment this morning. My favorite Shaklee products are the Nutrition Therapy skin care line. I have extremely dry skin, and these work great for me - I can tell a huge difference in my skin since I started using them. Thanks so much for giving us another opportunity to win! P.S. Love the site!!

I am super excited about their Laundry Booster and Stain Remover: http://www.shaklee.com/00305.html. I currently use a spray that smells terrible, and would love to get rid of it. Now's the time, right?

Thanks!

I like the C+E nighttime repair cream! Their skin products concentrate on nutrition

The whole "get clean" line of green cleaning products is wonderful. I am so glad that companies are starting to make responsible cleaning products.

Danielle said...

I could definitely use the Cinch! LOL!

I like the Soft Fabric Fragrance Free Dryer Sheets. I can't use stuff with frangrance on my youngest clothing so that means no dryer sheets until now

Mary512 said...

I would love to try the vitalizer plus iron, ideal for women. great giveaway, thanks!

Anonymous said...

From looking at their site I think the Dish Wash Liquid Concentrate would be my fave. As an everyday thing it would be great but would be especially great for the cottage - where sink/dish water goes into a gray water pit.

I have been using Shaklee products for over 20 years. I love the vitamins, and cleaning products. My favorite is the Basic G - germacide. It kills just about all germs including the AIDS virus. I feel confident my house is clean and I'm not harming my children with harsh cleaning chemicals.

The Healthy Home pack sounds like something I'd definitely be interested in. I'm glad you pointed out that the items are so concentrated because when I saw the price on the Get Clean kit, my first thought was, "No way!"

I love the Scour Off. I use it to clean my stainless steel kitchen sink. It has a nice smell, a little goes a long way, and it does the job very well.

mom2boys said...

I'd love to try the Nature Bright Stain Remover. Having kids around there is always tough stains I'm trying to get out. Thanks for the chance to win!

Suzie G. said...

I like the dryer sheets. I'm afraid to use dryer sheets on my baby's clothes because they may irritate his skin. At the same time though, I hate the static and getting zapped 10 times when I unload the dryer.

Leah said...

I would love to try the dish wash detergent (I always feel strange cleaning surfaces I eat off of with chemicals).....and the skin care system sounds good for my dry winter hands!

Thanks!

Dolly said...

i think the H2 super cleaning concentrate would be awesome! i need an organic, safe for baby (and me) cleaner that does the job. vinegar & warm water just doesn't cut the oven grease and it smells like puke (according to my husband). i'm always looking for something that WORKS, is SAFe, smells good, and doesn't hurt the budget. thanks for making me aware of these products! i just thought shaklee was another nutrition company.

Uniquely Yours said...

In my profession I am constantly washing my hands which leads to very dry hands I would like to try their nutrition therapy skin care line.

penguin28 said...

I would be willing to try their skin care line. The Enfuselle Nutrition Therapy line looks like it would be really good for your skin without all of the additives and harsh chemicals.

Your review of the dishwasher soap has me very curious! Right now we are using Mrs. Meyers, maybe when that runs out. I'd also like to try the Soft Fabric Fragrance Free Dryer Sheets, I rip my in half to get more out of them, and I'd be curious if I could do that with these!

After looking at everything I was most intrigued by the Scour Off Heavy Duty Paste. That would really come in handy when it comes time to clean up my husbands spaghetti cooking messes. He makes a mean spaghetti but an even meaner mess! Eek...

Kathy said...

I need the Basic H2 in order to condense my present cleaners into just one for multi-tasking. I have several children and they cannot keep up with lugging 3 or 4 cleansers into each bathroom to do the whole room. Just one of the Basic H2 can do it all.
